A goal many of our clients have in common is to SCULPT AND TONE their ARMS! You’ll only need a mat, a sturdy chair and a set of medium dumbbells to take advantage of these arm-shaping moves. BONUS: Most of these moves are in plank so you’ll maximize your time by working core and arms simultaneously!
Side Plank + Shoulder Raise
Plank on your elbow with a DB in your top hand,
start by resting it on your hip. Raise the DB from
your hip to over your shoulder and back down.
*Make it harder: After every shoulder raise, bend
at the waist to tap your bottom hip on the floor
and back up.
Start in a plank on your hands, drop onto one
elbow and then the other, pause here in elbow
plank, then press up one hand at a time.
Tricep Dips off a bench or chair
Sit on the edge of a chair with fingers pointing
forward, Lift your body off and lower in front of the
bench, elbows bend behind you as you lower toward
the floor and press up.
*Stay close to the bench to protect your shoulders.
Plank + Dumbbell Row
Plank with each hand on a dumbbell. Focusing on
stability through the core, alternate pulling one
dumbbell up to your hip.
*Make it easier: Planking from your knees allows
you to practice stability. Make sure to keep hips
down, keeping your body in a straight line from
your knees to the top of your head.
